I resent that taxpayers are funding $25,000 worth of repairs to a statue outside Roslyn High School and $40,000 for an electronic sign in the Great Neck school district .
I don’t mind paying for repairs to sports facilities or playgrounds at other schools because students need safe, well-functioning facilities for exercise and sporting events. Purchasing police cars and improving fire department facilities also benefits the whole community. Who benefits from an electronic sign or a statue? Why do taxpayers need to fund these projects that benefit a small portion of the population in two wealthy school districts?
I am sure the schools could do some fundraising from alumni and current students’ families and have the funds to pay for those projects in no time.
